Professional Training.

DCGP provides professional training on problem gambling throughout the year. The objective is to aid gambling counselors in maintaining their skills, give noncertified counselors the training they need to become certified and provide training for those interested in learning more about problem gambling.

Our trainers bring a wealth of personal and professional knowledge and skill with them. We teach trainees to enhance, interpret or reinterpret knowledge they already have. We also bring in national and international trainers to generate interest, interaction and skill-building with a wide range of diverse topics.

The training is free and confidential for all participants.
